The "Big Read" for 2018-2019

 

JOIN US THIS SATURDAY as we discuss The Underground Railroad at the Library.

3:30 pm to 5 pm , Saturday March 23.  Sponsored by Von's Book Shop.

 

The West Lafayette Public LIbrary is glad to partner with the English Department at Purdue as we present our second annual “Big Read,” a voluntary common read program designed to link Purdue and Greater Lafayette readers.

With the help of campus and community partners, each year we select a great book, create a calendar of engaging events, and provide copies to English majors, Purdue students, local high schools, public libraries, and more. 

The “Big Read” book for 2018-2019 is The Underground Railroad. Colson Whitehead will be the guest speaker for our 2019 Literary Awards Banquet.
